The Vista lookout nearby allows you to see the re-built Mexican Canyon Trestle to the east as well as White Sands National Park to the west through the Mexican Canyon. The view is ever changing depending on the weather.

The hike has a few strenuous portions, partial ups and downs, and the best part on the old rail road bed. The trestle and view at the end is great. Myself and my wife are in our late 60's; so if we can do, just...More
